Research Interests

 

My research interests are generally two-fold, comprising both field-related and experimental petrological studies. Field-related petrological studies focus on igneous and metamorphic rocks from world-wide localities, including Namibia/Angola, Australia, Samos (Greece), Rogaland (Norway), Tamil Nadu (India), and Syria/Turkey. Experimental studies are mainly concerned with fluid-rock interaction processes occurring at elevated temperatures and pressures. In addition, I am involved in archaeometric projects related to ancient stone sculptures and ceramics, with focus on the Middle to Late Bronze Age.
